Every design is the product of hundreds (or thousands) of decisions: Which research methods should you use? Which design principles are most important for a given task? What’s the best location for a certain button? The answer to each of these questions is a resounding, “It depends.” General UX guidelines and even specific research provide information, but they don’t tell you exactly which solution is best.
“我认为这门课是在我超级有帮助work activities. I'm faced with similar design decisions on a daily basis and now I feel like I have the knowledge to evaluate the situation and to ask the right questions that would help me make an educated choice."
“This is a great course to get a broad idea of identifying and assessing problems and making appropriate decisions for each use-case. It provides you with the tools you need to implement this from day one. The course is very well structured, and the instructor is a joy to listen to. Highly recommended."
“The course has provided me with strategies and insights for making a UX case in bigger organizations. Real world case studies further helped in understanding the nuances of working with cross functional teams."
Alka Mishra, Big Lots Inc, Columbus
“Great way to think about cause and effect in a multitude of situations. I can imagine using what I've learned in 90% of what I do on a daily basis."
Paige Dupont，Logic Dept.
“I really loved the course. It's always hard to pitch UX especially in the legacy organization bit using the proposed framework you can easily prove any point or create a compelling presentation"
“Kathryn was a great instructor. She broke down the topics and connected them to each other and our work to really help drive home understanding. The decision-making models she shared are valuable tools, and she gave them to us in an actionable format to make them easier to integrate into our teams."
“This course provides the foundation for making sound decisions as well as a framework to help overcome the natural biases unconsciously present in our intuition. It will help you understand and rationalize tradeoffs, leading to improved and more successful UX designs. I am very grateful to have taken this course, as well as "Discoveries: Building the Right Thing" with Maria Rosala. Maria is a brilliant presenter; She covers the material at just the right speed, in just the right depth, making sure to never rush and ensure everyone clearly understands the content before moving on."
Christopher Harold Butler, Accenture, Stavanger, Norway
“This is so helpful for everyone struggeling making decision or communitacting decisions back to the team. And it does not matter what your role is since a lot of the concepts are so adptable."
”“设计权衡和用户体验决策框架一堂课s Feedback"provided valuable tools and frameworks I have been looking for to anchor my design practice: e.g. "what is the right tool for the design problem at hand?" and "how do I know if I have covered enough ground for this design problem? High-quality content, well structured and paced, nicely delivered and organized, with a good mix of case studies, polls, and group exercises. I had a great virtual class experience with UX fellows around the world. The Zoom comment feature supported real-time live discussions really well."
“It's perfect even for someone like me, who has been a director level for a few years now. The content really does a good job at providing structure and understanding to the high level techniques or approaches we use to make decisions to solve everyday problems."
“I enjoyed every second of this course. It was well organized and presented. The case-based approach provided practical aspects and helped me to accept new knowledge quickly."
“For management roles conveying the value of UX and helping stakeholders make the right choices is crucial. The course has equips you in several ways to drive those conversations and decisions which define the structure of identifying and narrowing down on what problems should be solved!"
“I would say it is broad enough to be helpful for anyone in UX, and gives a lot of tools to use. I will definitely be reusing the class materials when I face a problem in my own design process or when I need to prioritize user needs and communicate rationale to PMs, etc. I liked all the real-world examples, and how they were also timely (I can tell the slides are updated from time to time). I also liked all the links to the slides, so I can continue learning or verify sources. I wish there was more of a summary at the end."
“This course allowed me to gain insight into the decision-making process in the company where I work. I will therefore have several arguments to improve this process as well as more arguments to debate with the different sectors that open in the team."
“发现这门课程如此有趣 - 理论和实用的完美混合。当我需要做出决定时，我可以采取这么多的这一点。”
“Take it, it's great!"
Gunnar Carlen，Sopra Steria，斯德哥尔摩瑞典
“这门课程应该由每个用户体验practitioner who wants to deliver the best possible solution in every context. A lot of knowledge that you can apply right away."
“If you are someone who presents strategies and designs to stakeholders, then this is the course for you! It helped me a lot on how will I weigh the company's goals vs customer experience, how will I apply this to the design, and how will I present the solution back to the stakeholders to get their buy ins."
“Making design decisions is the essential activity of UX designers, though I never had a chance to sit down and think from the high level of how I made the decisions. This course gave me a chance to reflect how I made decisions, and broadened my decision making toolkit and frameworks."
“If you're like me and you struggle to satisfice - "good enough is never good enough" - then you should also take this course... I really hope to implement those frameworks into my process to make more effective and efficient design decisions!"
“I found this course really useful and it directly addressed some of the challenges that I face in my own organisation. The case studies were helpful for understanding the frameworks and some of the more complex ideas."
“I recommend it. I thought the section on Design Principles was particularly useful and applicable to my job."
“This course provides tools that your team can start implementing as soon as the day after to help make decisions based on concrete guidelines. If you feel the product you are working on is visually all over the place or driven by a select few stakeholders, this course is for you."
“I thought I knew almost everything about UX, but after participating in this course I have definitely learned everything about this new topic, and see many ways of applying this in my day-to-day work!"
